Astrakhan is the Russian city, 1979 the year remembered. A year and a half and a journey covering many kilometers, from Moscow to the Caspian Sea, to Azerbaijan. The beginning of the voyage is the search for a haven. Martim’s parents, who was 15 years old then, are militants of the Communist Party and see the Soviet Union as an ideal to aspire to.
